What is it about the United Kingdom that gestates bands like TOY? Is it something to do with the effects of omnipresent fog and dampness on psychotropic drug use? Is that what gives birth to so much music that’s at once both mopey and joyous? Like Happy Mondays or New Order before them, there’s a UK twist to the psychedelic sounds of TOY that’s sounds like a kind of hopeless abandon, a point at which the moment becomes the most crucial part of any experience.
